Droid X

A few hours ago we brought you news about an update in the works for the Motorola Droid X, and now Verizon has posted the change log to tell us just what the update entails.  It's not a version bump, but nobody really expected Ice Cream Sandwich (officially) for this one.  On the plus side, the Droid X should be at the top of it's game with all the tweaks included in build 4.5.621.MB810

  • Prevents lockups or resets after the Over the Air (OTA) update.
  • OTA update notice screen displays the correct estimated update time.
  • Improved browser security with the Google Security Patch from Android 2.3.6.
  • Fixed issue where the device may power ON without user interaction.
  • Resolved possible device resets while playing music.
  • Adjusted camera settings will be saved, even after the device is powered down.
  • Reduced Out of Memory errors.
  • WAV files can be played from Visual Voice Mail.
  • Device is enabled with the Wireless Alerting System.
  • Improved stability of Music Player reduces resets.
  • Shortcuts to applications remain on the device even after applications are moved to the SD card.
  • Improved connectivity with 3G Mobile Hotspot data connectivity.
  • Addressed error that replicated thumbnails in message threads.
  • Corrected errors where Yahoo! mail notifications were not displayed properly.
  • Reduced duplicate message errors.
  • Improved ability to access and receive Gmail when the Mobile Hotspot is turned on.
  • Sorted contact groups.
  • Device recognizes Multimedia ringtones after purchase.
  • Button background lighting turns off while in the desktop cradle.

See?  We weren't kidding!  Instructions and help with the update are available as well, but everything is still marked as "Coming Soon" for now.  When it goes live, we'll tell ya.

Droid X update change log online, brings a bevy of bugfixes


Just a warning. Make sure you do steps to keep your root as there currently is no way to root 2.3.6.

Do not make the mistake I did in upgrading my Atrix 4G to 2.3.6 from 2.3.4. I moved way to fast and I have lost root until someone figures out how to root 2.3.6. All current root methods are a no go.

Probably a good tip to remember. I have an X2 & I guess we might get an update to fix some of the lingering issues here. We will have to see how it shakes out.

Certainly some good advice, but you don't need root to SBF back to an earlier version. Of course the downside is you lose data.
